"I feel privileged to hold such a post in this hospital."
Born in San Francisco, California, Daniel Doyle, MD, went to high school in Queens, New York and moved back to Massachusetts - his parent's home state - shortly before entering college.
A graduate of the College of the Holy Cross, summa cum laude in Psychology, Dr. Doyle decided he'd rather become a physician than a psychologist. He earned his Medical Degree at the University of Massachusetts in Worcester, and followed with an Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut. He also received a Fellowship in Pulmonary Medicine at the University of Connecticut in Farmington.
Dr. Doyle's affiliation with BMC goes back to 1985, when he was interviewed by Dr. Richard Cordon for a position in the Respiratory Therapy Department. Since that time, Dr. Doyle and his staff have won many awards and accolades on both regional and national levels.
Today, Dr. Doyle serves as Medical Director of the ICU and Consultant in Pulmonary Diseases here at BMC. "We're a great team," reflects Dr. Doyle. "I use the analogy that our staff on ICU is like 50 sisters and brothers to me. Over time, I'm beginning to realize the importance of our work with patients as it reflects on our community. I feel privileged to hold such a post in this hospital.
Dr. Doyle was drawn to the Berkshires following his days here as a medical student in 1976. "It had all I could ever ask for; scenery, culture, and a great place to work."
Dr. Doyle's hobbies include hiking, woodworking and swimming, and he volunteers his time with both the Boy Scouts and Dalton's Board of Health. He and his wife Cathy live in Dalton with their three children, Michael, Molly, Catherine and Curran.
